Re: When people ask for gift ideas

Noone shops for my kids except for my mom and she always asks exactly what they want so that would be good for her. In general though I would just just say LalaLoopsey or Duplo....

Re: When people ask for gift ideas

I agree, it depends who is asking

My mom requests I keep an amazon wishlist up to date. She doesn't always buy things exactly from the list, but it gives a good idea of what they are interested it. I don't give this out to anyone else though

My MIL likes to shop sales and so specific things or even brand stuff (like saying they like geotrax) wouldn't work. I have to get much more general, like pirates, trains, superheros, etc.

Some of my siblings don't spend have a lot of money to spend, so I mention smaller affordable things to them like art supplies or books

My grandparents want to purchase big ticket items so they get a few specific ideas of things the kids would really like.

I tell people what my kids are into and then they can go from there.
